Ever heard of Younique? I hadn’t either till last month. Curious as ever, I had some samples sent through to me all the way to the UK. I like to be surprised, and mostly in a good way, and Younique did not disappoint.
I’ve become set in my ways with my make up. Bare Escentuals, Estee Lauder, Dior. That’s it. Same colors, same style. I really do not get out of my make up comfort zone.
So I decided to experiment with Younique. For example, today I’m wearing a green sparkly eyeshadow which, previously, I would have shuddered at. But it looks freaking awesome! And it inspires me! I feel different and it opens up my eyes. Whereas I would usually wear a browny eyeshadow, this adds a new twist and flavour to my whole face!
Younique is a naturally based makeup and skin care line, all made in the USA and animal cruelty free. They are most well known for our 3D Fiber Lash Mascara + (which, I am told, is life changing!). I must try that!
My eyeshadows last all day so I am guessing they are pretty high quality products as the website suggests. I’ve also been using the Illuminate Clean Face Cleanser, which is awesome, and the Divine Daily Moisturiser. These both will make my shopping list at the end of the month.
It appears I am most in love with the Moonstruck Minerals Eye Pigment range – and their names are to die for! Innocent, Adorable and Enamored. I feel all of the above when I wear them! I love the Splurge Cream Eye Shadow as a base eyeshadow, and underneath that is the Glorious Face and Eye Primer.
